An Alternate Perspective on Global Warming: Part Three

Watch the Unstoppable Global Cycles video followed by The Great Global Warming Swindle and a video presentation by Fred S. Singer (here are the slides for that presentation) (Climatologist IPCC reviewer) author  Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1,500 Years. (2007) New York, NY:  Rowan and Littlefield Publishers. 

 
The Great Global Warming Swindle  is a film produced by the BBC which counters the arguments proffered in An Inconvenient Truth. I also found the download for the video available at the following blog - The Reference Frame.   Please view all of these films and answer the questions below. You will also want to take a look at a critique of the Great Global Warming Swindle film which refutes a set of 12 key assertions made in the film.
 

Questions:

 

  1. Summarize the position that Unstoppable Global Warming thesis took and explain how it differs from that proffered in An Inconvenient Truth.

 

  1. After watching the Great Global Warming Swindle film, what characteristics of the research, the data, and the people presenting reflected a bias and in what direction?

 

  1. What made the information in the film / book trustworthy for you, or what made you question the information?

 

  1. How reliable did you find the information in the Great Global Warming Swindle and why?
